See & Do
This esteemed facility, affiliated with the University of Hawaii, has been in existence since 1904. Almost on the beach, it seeks not only to entertain visitors but to educate them and preserve delicate marine species. Tropical Pacific creatures are its main focus, and coral propagation is a prominent goal. Exhibits on reef life and Hawaiian monk seals are among the foremost displays, and you'll also encounter eels, turtles, sharks, a variety of fish, and the elusive chambered nautilus, a relative of squids and octopi.
